The pelvic floor is an important part of human anatomy. Considering how important it is, it always amazes me how infrequently the pelvic floor is discussed. It is responsible for correct bowel and bladder function, it is also responsible for normal sexual function. One could think of the pelvic floor as the structure that holds in and supports your insides. If the…Continue

Hey PPS-nation! How would you like to volunteer to help at the Super Half-Marathon and Game Day 5K JQRC Water Station? We get the half-marathon runners on their way out and on their way back. We are also the "turn around" for the 5K runners. Bottom line we will be busy. Our station is the "tailgate party" so besides Gatorade and water we also have chips, tunes, and a ton of fun. Drop me a note at OPS@JackQuinnsRunners.com

Dear reader, this post is a fable about cross-training. Like all good fables, it involves animals and morals, so let's get started.
When a gazelle walks up to the edge of a pool it stops and stares at the water. The thought process is something like this: Wow, that's deep, and dark, and...ahhhhh I just touched it and it's super cold! The pool is already full of splashy fish who don't even notice that 82 degrees is sort of bone-chilling. The gazelle is so obviously out of…Continue

Do you ride a bike? Would you like to ride for a great cause?
I'd like you invite you (yes, you! All of you reading this here in the Pikes Peak region, or anywhere for that matter!!) to join my team (Team 303) for the 2015 edition of the Colorado Bike MS, taking place June 27-28, 2015.
Why? Because in May of 2014, I got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). And chances are you know someone who has MS, even if they haven’t told you…Continue

While running is very important to me, sometimes I struggle to get out the door. No doubt there are others who have that same disorder, especially when the house is so comfortable. Standing by a window, in your initialed robe/slipper combo sipping on coffee, you watch sleet fall out of a foggy sky while hell-wind blows against the house. On top of that, it's inconsiderately, stupidly cold. All of these realities make you uneasy, so you huddle back into your den to keep up with other…Continue

Palmer Divide. Wind blows stiff out of the north. These speed trainers, the Brooks T5, serve me well. I think about how long I've had them...nearly a year. They'll probably do me well 'til Spring. A few more seconds to tighten the laces, and then I go.
First lap is aggressive. It's a method that works well for me...start hard and settle into pace. The mile will average between 6:00-6:55 if cards are played right. Something about knowing when to hold and fold.
